Gundula Kreuzer is a Lecturer in Dramaturgy and Dramatic Criticism at Yale School of Drama and an Associate Professor of Music in the Department of Music, Yale University. Her book Verdi and the Germans: From Unification to the Third Reich (Cambridge University Press, 2010; winner of the 2011 Lewis Lockwood Award) examines the changing impact of the popular Italian composer on German musical self-perception and national identity. She is currently completing a book called Wagnerian Technologies: On 19th-Century Opera as Production. Merging theoretical and historical approaches to opera's multimedia nature, it examines how composers since the late 18th century increasingly tried to control aspects of staging by incorporating specific uses of stage technologies such as the curtain, the tam-tam, fire, and steam. Kreuzer has guest-edited, with Clemens Risi, a double issue of The Opera Quarterly on “Opera in Transition” (vol. 23, nos. 2-3, 2011), which engages—among other transitions—current developments in Regietheater. From 2006 to 2010 she served as Associate and Reviews Editor of The Opera Quarterly, and she edited Verdi’s instrumental chamber music for The University of Chicago Press and Ricordi (2010). Her publications have appeared in various journals, encyclopedias, and edited volumes, and have received several prizes from the American Musicological Society as well as the Royal Musical Association and Yale’s Samuel and Ronnie Heyman Prize for Outstanding Scholarly Publication. In 2010-11 she was a Fellow at the Whitney Humanities Center.
